Description

Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American Read

Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred

One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

  • A Masterpiece

    By Lakota Lupin🐺
    This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. My friend let me borrow her copy, and I was hooked. The majority of the book gives off a calm, summery feeling that you got as a child whenever school ended for the year. Many of the characters are likable, the plot line is intriguing, and the writing is beautiful.
  • Amazing Title

    Those who rated this book poorly do not understand the historical context of this book. A truly revolutionary book for its time, 5 stars.

    I have never had a book hit me as hard emotionally as To Kill a Mockingbird. This book challenges your mind with countless hidden messages and the many political issues facing the reader. I have never been this emotionally impacted by a novel, and I encourage everyone to read it.

    It’s fine, but not “classic" material
